discharged from the u.s. navy reserve earlier this year. in fact, just a short time ago, after serving in several overseas jobs. basically as a security officer. he was a lieutenant. he had weapons training in the navy. but not a commando, not a navy s.e.a.l., this was basic security work. nonetheless, he had two awards critically. the rifle marksman ribbon, and the pistol expert medal. this meant he had some qualifications in shooting at some expert level at particular distances or ranges. i think, though, very clear we should also understand that he had expertise through his service as a police officer. many people, many police officers serve in the military reserve, and they have a lot of weapons expertise due to all of that. still, very concerning, obviously, because of his background. >> were you able to learn anything about did the military have any information on his mental health? >> reporter: well, this would be a matter of privacy concerns. but at the moment, they wouldn't publicly release that. at the moment, very preliminary, there is no indication of that, because he was h
of the national security agency and the u.s. cyber command telling reporters within the last hour that the cyber threat is real and growing citing the recent denial of service attacks on the major u.s. banks and a cyber assault on the saudi national oil company. >> this executive border is only a down payment on what we need to address the threat. this executive order can only move us so far and it's not a substitute for legislation. we need legislation and we need it quickly to defend our nation. >> reporter: aside from the attacks on the major u.s. banks a recent attack on that saudi oil firm revealed an ability to overwhelm computer networks and also infiltrate heavily guarded systems with the actual destruction of computer hardware and data. fox news recently spoke to the head of the house intelligence committee about this dramatic evolution in the cyber threat. >> i've seen them shut down the saudi company aramco, one of their main oil companies in saudi arabia in a very sophisticated, very dangerous attack. so not only was it just a denial of service, meaning you continue get access to you
in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were before and boots on the ground, the sense of the collective experience of war was quite different. we were looking at the numbers of military troops versus civilian americans not engaged and it is less than 1% of the u.s. population that is doing the fighting, and now with technology and drones, it, part of it why perpetual war seems possible because there is little cost to the vast majority of us. >> well, if we had a universal draft and in 1994 two-thirds of the class of princeton was drafted. that is a huge check on the politicians, and the policies that we are are following with drones are infuriating people because other people get killed and innocent people killed along the way, which raises in your question that you are raising future conflicts, and the anger that, imagine if somebody was using a drone here and killed
are you doing. >> greta: very well. dominic, tell the viewers who the doctor is and what he did for the u.s.? >> the pakistani doctor who helped the cia verify the location of bin laden and his compound in pakistan. he basically ran a hepatitis vaccination program set up by the cia and went to the compound under the pretext of vaccinating. and the calls to the compound to set up the visits were copied or traced by the cia and they've got a voice print of bin laden's personal courier and they knew they were on to the al-qaeda leader. >> and so our navy seals go in and take out usama bin laden and leave behind the doctor and he's arrested by the pakistanis, isi, thrown in prison and tried for treason and 30, 35 years. and have we done anything to get him back or to help free him? >> the efforts to get the doctor out have been very weak, quite frankly, on this side of the u.s. government, both at the cia level and also the state department in an effort-- in its efforts as well and one of the reasons, the u.s. government is very, very scared when it comes to dealing with the pakistanis, because

of the u.s. military fighting in afghanistan and, i believe, iraq as well. jake tapper is here. jake, you wrote a powerful book on this struggle in which clint romesha played such a critical role and we see the president now meeting with some family members of those who didn't necessarily make it out of that battle. your book tells the story. what do you think? you spent a lot of time with clint romesha. jake, tell us what you think was going through his mind as we heard all of these words. >> just one other point before we get to that, the president right there saying hi to the son of justin gallegos and the daughter of josh kirk, two men who did not make it back. the white house making a point of making sure the president would meet the children of the eight men who were fallen. but to answer your question, wolf, clint romesha is -- has been all weekend very uncomfortable with the attention. he is not one who seeks the limelight. he is the quintessential soldier who talks about how he did this for his buddies and he didn't do anything other than his job and he still is haunted by the ei
this today. >> i imagine they will. the u.s. conference of bishops, they have been very vocal on this but put out a press rele e release. it gets very complicated. >> insurance companies footing the bill. how are any feeling about that? >> well, two parts of that. one, insurance companies know that when you give a woman birth control, you end up saving a lot of money in the end, right? not paying for her pregnancy, not paying for the birth, not paying to take care of the child, once the child is born. they know they'll save money. another thing is that in some cases, insurance companies have to -- that have to pay fees to the federal government for obama care, they won't have to pay some of those fees. >> they won't. >> right. so that's where it gets complicated. insurance companies, they haven't put out their official statement yet but they're financially taken care of to a great degree in this plan. >>> we're hearing secretary of state hillary clinton has just turned in her resignation. and any minute now she is expected to say good-bye, one last time. we'll show it to you live. love about
that the u.s. government can order the killing of american citizens if they are believed to be senior operational leaders of al-qaeda or an associated force -- here's the key line -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. so that policy is that we believe justice department is saying it is perfectly legal to use drones, not just to go out and kill people that we think might some day plan an attack against the united states who are not friendly to the united states. but also to kill americans anywhere on the planet whom we think are traitors or may some day, plan something against the united states even if there is no evidence that they are now engaged in an active plot. raises the whole question about drone warfare. i'm torn about it because it's a different kind of warfare. i mean, certainly, i would like to know what you think about this. 1-866-55-press. the problem i believe is we've got this technology. we are using it. we are using it more than anybody has ever used it before. i mean i forget how many -- you kno
